Near Death Experiences….

A respected medical journal (I forget which, Ill chase up the article and add a link when i can be bothered) recently acknowledged and documented the existence of near death experiences. As resuscitation techniques have improved these are much more frequent, especially during various operations and surgery. Basically people who have had them talk about things such as feeling as if they were travelling through a dark tunnel towards a bright light, seeing deceased relatives, feeling a calm sense of peace and other out of body experiences.

Is this proof there is life after death, or is it the result of biochemical changes people's brains experience as a result of damage as blood supply falters?

I know sweet FA about the brain or for that matter anything to do with how the body functions, but interesting to speculate.

  1. The most recent study (i.e. reported this week) put forward the theory that these people are more susceptible to falling into a dreep state in that type of situation.

    Personally I think it's pretty psychosomatic. I'd guess that the vast majority of people who report these experiences have religious beliefs, whether they are expressed or repressed. Dreams and the brain generally are complicated business. I'd wager that large amount of subconscious activity (perhaps hearing the surgeons talking or whatever), expectations about life after death and various other factors explain these occurences. Who can really say, though?
